Vince Warren, CCR's Executive Director, and Nancy Cantor, Chancellor of Rutgers Law School - Newark, will discuss the importance of Rutgers’ 50 year-old Minority Student Program (MSP) to the championing of social justice. For more information on this event, visit the MSP 50th Celebration page
Rutgers Law School Minority Student Program (MSP) is a nationally acclaimed and highly successful post-admissions program that serves students of any race or ethnicity who are members of groups that are underrepresented in the legal profession, and who have faced discrimination or overcome social and economic hardships. The program takes a proactive approach to help students to succeed in law school by offering legal skills development, academic support, alumni mentoring and networking, internships and other opportunities.
This program has been a leading force in diversifying both legal education and the legal profession. Originally geared toward students of color, it is now open to any student who can demonstrate a history of socioeconomic or educational disadvantage.
